ultra-ult40112-adapter.jpgAnother year – another specification – another marketing term to look forward to. Nicknamed “SuperSpeed USB”, discussions of USB 3.0 came up again when “suspicious” connectors were spotted on a new Asus notebook, at CES 2008.

That, and many (much more interesting) other VR applications are changing with the Vuzix iWear VR920 Video Eyewear. These are the sleekest, most user-friendly VR (stands for Virtual Reality) we’ve seen to date.
